Prepping for court tomorrow

We went for a walk after our nap, all the way to the gediminas tower next to the cathedral. Saulius got a little tired and wanted to sit on a bench, munch on cucumbers, drink water and people watch. I got to carry him for quite awhile and he really hung on tight.

We had considered walking down to the river where there is a little beach where we could go wading since the river water is so clean. But we decided that based on the way Saulius behaves in the bath we should skip any water features. He loves taking baths and goes nuts in the water. He tries to swim in the tub, flops around, and really gets wound up. It's a shame too as there is a huge indoor water park that many other families recommended and we had brought our suits.

Dinner was really good: kuldunai - Lithuanian ravioli - with butter (no sour cream due to John's aversion to it) and broccoli. The kuldunai was just some frozen stuff from the grocery but it tasted like my grandmothers! We will be having it often!

John is busy writing his/our speech for the judge tomorrow. We both kept choking up at the lawyers and I know I won't be able to get a coherent sentence out at court. As long as one of us speaks and the other agrees we are ok. Saulius is playing pretty nicely. We did have a little game of chase/hide & seek earlier. Now there is some Lithuanian version of either American Idol, American bandstand or other such on TV which has Saulius captivated. Right now they are doing "Summer Nights" from "Grease" - in Lithuanian - and it's sort of scary with choreography that makes WST look like Balanchine/Martha Grahman.

I did get 3 loads of laundry done in our minature washer. At home I could have easily fit it in one load,

Yep - that's a roll of tp on top for scale and it is in the toilet room. The tub is in a separate room. And there is no dryer.

We are going to hit the courtyard playground then try to get to bed earlier than yesterday. Tomorrow will be a very busy day for all of us.
